School Walkout For Palestine! 

LGBTQ+ and Allied Youth Demand Justice for Palestine

Outright youth organizers, collaborating with members of the Racial Justice Alliance of Montpelier High School, organized a school walkout on Wednesday, March 27th, from 11am-12pm.

Led by Youth and Supported by Outright

Youth Organizers called on all students and allied adults across Vermont and New England to join in this direct action and show your solidarity with the Palestinian people to demand:

  1. An end to the occupation of the State of Gaza and the West Bank.

  2. A permanent ceasefire.

  3. A complete withdrawal of all Israeli forces from Palestinian territories.

Did you walk out or participate in another way? Let us know by completing this School Walkout For Palestine reply form. It’s not required, but it will help us and the youth organizers know how widely this direct action has spread!

It's all motivated by the wrong things. That's my issue with it and what frustrates me- this is something that's created by us. Our country is only inflaming this issue and aren't listening to the people that are telling them to stop because of some tertiary issue like greed. Genocide shouldn’t be taken lightly.
